Find a Grave has been helpful to me in my research and I would like to return the favor. If I have created a memorial for a relative I will transfer at your request.I welcome corrections for any errors I've made.
THERE IS A HEAVENLY GARDEN, by Otis Rainwater
Sometimes God picks the flower That is still in bloom Sometimes the rosebud's chosen That we feel He's picked too soon Sometimes the flower is fading With petals floating down But God knows the perfect time To gather flowers from the ground There is a heavenly garden In which God takes great pleasure Because He's placed within it The loved ones that we treasure He walks among the blossoms Giving them eternal rest And I know that it must please him Because He chose our very best.
Used by permission. The perfect time for Otis to pass from this life came November 4, 2010.
RE: Craig Garner Thank you, Wayne. I'm new at this. I use find-a-grave often to add details to my ancestry family tree, and I figured it was about time for me to tend to my immediate relatives' virtual graves.
Thank you for including Daddy's grave. Are we related? Mutual Brownsboro roots?
RE: Otis Rainwater He was my husbands 4th cousin. If you have other items you wish to share on the wall, you may now add up to a total of 20 items. We had a fire in 2006 and lost everything, all photos and family keepsakes, so I only have what other people share. Thanks for all you help and I am glad he had a friend like you. Gloria
